I guess this is something God wants to remind me of because I had another lesson on it on a different night. I was having yet another endless battle with my son over picking up his room. We were arguing back and forth and I had been losing my patience somewhat so I called him over to me. I hugged him and told him that I loved him. He said "Still?" I looked at him, puzzled and he said "Even when you're mad at me?" I explained to him that yes, no matter how mad or frustrated I get, I will always love him. It turned out to be a great time to explain to him that God feels the same way.
"No matter how filthy something gets, you can always clean it right up."
